22oz bottle poured to Pelican, could not find born on date but clerk thinks it is approx 8 mo old. Enjoyed on 2/25/17.
L: Dark amber, dark off white head, good retention and the most solid coat of lacing I've ever seen.
S: Haven't smelled one like this before; very unique and strong in a good way. Like a spicy ripened fruitcake.
T: Taste matched aroma perfectly; rich and spicy fruitcake with a strong malt backbone. Very unique. Bold yet smooth and balanced.
F: Has a chewy sweetness that I like. Not boozy at all for a 9 abv.
O: Not your typical citrusy floral piney DIPA; very unique in a good way and definitely worth trying. 9.95 for bomber was a little pricey IMO but glad I tried this Bama brew. Wish it were easier to find and more readily available.

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a BBC Perfect Pint glass. Dark Amber color, pretty hazy. One finger head, good retention and lacing. Aroma is very sweet, with a little bit of fruity notes. The taste is pretty close to the aroma, it's pretty malty sweet. The mouthfeel wa thick and creamy - very nice, with a bit of prickly carbonation after the beer settled on the tongue. Overall, if I could get this regularly, it would probably occupy a permanent spot in my fridge.

This is my favorite 2xipa I have ever had. Great aroma, perfect amount of piney bite to balance out the sweet explosion of citrus notes on the tongue and nose.

Served on tap at the brewery.

Rich auburn. It smells fruity and delightful. Sadly, the flavor is less fruity. Lots of earthy-bitter malt. The flavor is brief and one dimensional.

It grows on me the more I drink. A pretty standard DIPA, but not spectacular. Will not have again.

A - Deep rich auburn hue. Caramel color indicative of style.

S - Explosive floral hop aroma bursting with cascade, columbus, and a hint of amarillo. A beautiful aroma for any true hophead.

T - Strong hop profile on the front end. Clean finish. Explodes just a proper hop bomb should with a strong malty backbone.

M - Buttery, creamy. Rich and fulfilling. But doesn't linger.

O - True to style. Not overwhelming. At 9% no detectable presence of alcohol. With a clean finish I don't feel like I will be oozing out hops from the pores in the morning.
